Beware of the Destiny Thief
Many are feeling the sting of discouraging thoughts at this time. Satan has used COVID-19 as a launching pad of fear to release discouragement into the earth. He has used discouragement to try and cause God's people to faint and turn back throughout this year 2020. This assignment is against the promises of God. He has tried to run people out of their Promised Land. Discouragement is a giant in your Promised Land and it looks big, but it is only a smokescreen. Push through! There is no substance to it.
I felt the Lord say, "My people need to know these thoughts are not their thoughts; these are thought assignments from the enemy sent out to kill, steal and destroy; to kill off their dreams, steal their hope, and destroy their vision. Satan is a destiny thief. Be aware of the wiles of the devil; he will try and make you think your thoughts of quitting, failing, running away, are your own thoughts."
Demonic spirits speak to us by projecting their lies into our minds through thoughts.
We can accept them or not. It’s up to us. The first step is to identify the enemy. We need to not just cast down wrong thoughts; we need to rebuke the demonic spirit of discouragement, which has been trying to plant seeds to be silent in Jesus name.
"I bind demonic spirits of discouragement now from every assignment to stop people’s destinies. I release hope to override all discouragement, and strength to all those who feel discouraged. I thank You, Lord, that the people of God are stepping into their greater destinies as you breakthrough on their behalf. In Jesus name. Amen.
”Strengthen those who are discouraged. Energize those who feel defeated. Say to the anxious and fearful, 'Be strong and never afraid. Look, here comes your God! He is breaking through to give you victory! He comes to avenge your enemies. With divine retribution He comes to save you!' Then blind eyes will open And deaf ears will hear." (Isaiah 35:3-5 TPT)
